​​Administrative Staff within each of NIH's Institutes and Centers (IC) help prepare and submit casework to the Division of International Services (DIS) for foreign national scientists in the Visiting Program. Their continued dedication and understanding of both NIH and immigration policy and procedures is crucial to ensuring the integrity of the Visiting Program, which allows NIH to maintain compliance with immigration regulations while continuing its tradition of attracting the most talented foreign researchers.​

DIS shares important immigration updates, procedural changes, and event invitations via our Administrative Staff listserv. To subscribe to the listserv, send an email to with the following text in the message body: "Subscribe your first and last name"
